Beyond Cracker Jacks: Spring Training Eats That Don't Suck

Spring Training season is one of the best reasons to live in Phoenix. Locals enjoy easy accessibility of games and players, cheaper ticket prices and more intimate stadiums, while the poor folks in states other than Arizona and Florida have to get on a plane and fly halfway across the country to get those benefits. Ha, ha! But let us laugh not at their misfortune.

Headed to the Cubs/Brewers game at Hohokam Park today? Have tickets to Thursday's Mariners vs. Giants bout at Scottsdale Stadium? Tailgating out of a cooler in your trunk is tacky, and ballpark franks aren't exactly gourmet eats.

Find out what's on the menu at each of the Spring Training stadiums -- and where you can score delicious cuisine and drink specials near the ballparks -- in our 2010 Spring Training Dining Guides to the West Side and the East Valley.
